The ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ASTM ICAM 2022), sponsored by the ASTM International Additive Manufactured Center of Excellence (AM CoE), was held October 31 – November 4, 2022 in Orlando, FL at the JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort and Spa.
This was ASTM International’s seventh annual flagship event related to standardization, qualification, and certification with an emphasis on industry specific requirements addressing the entire AM process chain. This event involved many ASTM committees and external stakeholders, setting the stage to bring experts from all around the world to exchange the latest advancement in the field of additive manufacturing with emphasis on transition of research to application through standardization.
The implementation of additive manufacturing training and recruitment programs such as the Student Presentation Competition and Young Professional in AM awards, will also be offered. Additionally, the recipients of the three prestigious 2022 ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Awards of Excellence in Education, Research, and Standardization were announced during this event.
As AM technologies are adopted by various industries, establishing feedstock-process-structure-property-performance relationships becomes essential for qualification and certification of parts in safety critical applications. This conference addresses application specific requirements of various industry sectors in addition to covering the fundamentals of AM process chain. Industry, academia, and government agency professionals in the AM community are invited to address the current and future state of:
- Industry standards
- Design principles
- Qualification and certification
- Innovations in the industry
- Materials and processes
- Data management, sharing, analysis and beyond
Materials of interest include metals, polymers, composites, electronics, ceramics, and other related feedstocks.
Before additively manufactured parts can be used in safety-critical applications, a clear understanding of the entire process chain and feedstock-process-structure-property-performance relationships must be established. ICAM 2022 will be the largest ASTM International scientific conference and intended to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to transition the research to applications, focusing on the need for industry-specific standards and design principles as well as challenges with qualification and certification.
The first event, a May 2016 workshop, was sponsored by the committee on fatigue and fracture (E08) in San Antonio, Texas. The second event, a November 2017 symposium, was sponsored by E08 committee and the committee on additive manufacturing technologies (F42) in Atlanta, Georgia. The third event in November 2018, sponsored by the F42, E08, and E07 (nondestructive testing) committees, was held in the Washington, D.C. After the creation of ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) in 2018 and the growth of the additive manufacturing industry, the 4th event, held in Washington, D.C. area in 2019, was led by the AM CoE and dozens of involved additional technical committees. In 2020, the ASTM AM CoE decided to offer this gathering as a major conference. The ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ICAM 2020) included 19 symposia and 10 panels, held over 5 days with 5 parallel sessions. Due to the pandemic, the ICAM 2020 was organized virtually with over 300 presentations and close to 600 participants. ICAM 2021 grew to a hybrid event held in Anaheim, CA and online, in November 2021 with over 850 participants, including 26 symposia, 11 panel discussions, and 7 keynote addresses.
This year’s event, the ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ASTM ICAM 2022), will have a broader scope related to standardization, qualification, and certification of AM products. This event will involve even more ASTM committees and external stakeholders, setting the stage to bring experts from around the world to exchange the latest developments in the field of additive and advanced manufacturing towards the 4th industrial revolution. We invite the entire community to join us for the exchange of ideas, to learn about the most recent advancements in the field, and to be a part of the journey for transitioning research to application through standardization.

Additive manufacturing feedstocks are available for a broad range of material types and in various forms, including powder, wire, filament, inks, etc. New offerings are continuously introduced to the market with varied and unique characteristics. In some cases, all of the critical feedstock characteristics which significantly impact the quality of each process step are not fully understood quantitatively. Therefore, a proper understanding of AM feedstock characteristics and key variables contributing to their performance can be essential for production of AM parts with repeatable quality. New characterization methods, acceptance criteria, and standards are to be developed for the complete characterization of the feedstock materials.

Additive manufacturing enables modernization and more capable defense systems through the fabrication of highly optimized and complex parts. It also enables improved readiness by providing an alternative route to manufacturing hard to source spare parts and parts at the point of need, e.g. by battle damage repair or temporary spare parts manufactured onsite. Because of this, the defense industry has taken a lead in advancing and maturing this technology. However, the existing commercial standards, military standards, airworthiness standards, and certification practices may be difficult to apply or are not relevant to AM parts. Thus, new standards and practices need to be developed to facilitate broader and more rapid adoption.

The automotive transportation/heavy machinery industry continues to advance the use of additive manufacturing through a wide variety of manufacturing technologies and materials. The transportation industry looks to AM to enable benefits through redesign of existing components as well as part consolidation, in order to improve cost, performance, and lead time. Successful implementations have focused on the ability of AM to enable low volume solutions, but high-volume production remains a challenge. Barriers to adoption include the cost of AM production tied to large capital investment and low AM build rates, the need for suitable and cost effective materials, and a lack of data and standards to facilitate adoption with confidence in quality assurance compounds these concerns.

The aerospace industry is one of the primary sectors which leverages additive manufacturing to its fullest extent. Cost savings, weight reduction, functional improvements and schedule optimization are the key drivers, which can be achieved by redesigning many existing components, new design concepts and through part consolidation. New materials with superior or similar properties, capable process controls and process stability, and novel design methodologies are the key enablers. However, related standards, as well as qualification and certification (Q&C) practices may need to be reevaluated/updated for additively manufactured products.

The medical industry is one of the key sectors to take advantage of additive manufacturing technology. AM’s unique capability to design and rapidly fabricate complex geometries using a diverse array of materials has enabled the ever-growing adoption of this technology in biomedical applications. Despite the tremendous opportunities that AM offers in manufacturing patient-specific biomedical devices with custom and complex designs in orthopedic devices, the full potential of AM to serve the medical sector has not been fully explored. Advancements in regenerative medicine, medical device fabrication, and surgical planning is enabling a broader adoption of AM in the critical medical industry. In addition, special attention is required for standardization, qualification and certification protocols of these products.

Additive manufacturing has evolved over the past decade and research has primarily focused on the evaluation of microstructure characterization and mechanical performance with limited emphasis on environmentally induced degradation modes. However, understanding environmental effects (e.g., corrosion, decomposition, stress corrosion cracking, etc.) on additively manufactured alloys is critical to enable use in structural components for engineering applications.

The rapid adoption of additive manufacturing across numerous industry sectors with a wide variety of applications requires methodologies for the characterization and mitigation of risk arising from material flaws. For safety-critical applications, it is particularly important to understand how material characteristics and process defects typical to AM (e.g., pores, lack of fusion, surface roughness, etc.) affect component integrity. Understanding these effects is complicated by the lack of historical data, the potential for variability in AM processes, and the rapid evolution of the technology. The qualification, certification, and safe continued use of AM products in fatigue-critical applications will depend not only on a basic understanding of damage mechanisms and the associated behavior of typical AM defects, but also on the development of robust, validated models and software for predicting fatigue life and fracture risk.

The rapid advancement of additive manufacturing technologies and increased adoption of the technologies in industry have coincided with the emergence of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI & ML) in the mainstream. A massive amount of data is being generated in AM from various steps of the AM process, including design, process planning, building, in-situ monitoring, post-processing, inspection, characterization, and testing, as well as operation performance, during the service life of the component. Further, a high number of parameters are being defined for monitoring and control of AM processes. Both data and parameters make AM a great candidate for AI and ML applications. The objective of applying AI & ML is to better understand underlying physical phenomena in AM and fine tune the AM processes.

Advancing towards the vision of Industry 4.0, information sharing via a distributed manufacturing framework internally in an organization and over the global internet becomes increasingly utilized with additive manufacturing. AM is a direct digital manufacturing method, and as the AM equipment becomes more closely interconnected with other components of Industry 4.0, it becomes exposed to a variety of cyber- and cyber-physical attacks. Therefore, security of AM should be addressed in a holistic manner. This includes but is not limited to identifying cyber-security threats in AM and how they can be addressed, to ensure and support the advancing of manufacturing to a whole new level. This symposium explores specific security aspects for AM in an Industry 4.0 environment.

Additive manufacturing presents us with a unique opportunity of generating massive amounts of data from various steps of the AM process, including design, process planning, building, in-situ monitoring, post-processing, inspection, characterization, and testing, as well as operation performance, during the service life of the component. While such data can be used to better understand key process variables (KPVs) and support decision making, it simultaneously presents a big data management challenge. Methods of AM data labeling, acquisition, storage, analysis, security, and sharing are yet to be fully explored. While many companies have developed internal procedures to address the above challenges, the AM community would benefit from standards and best practices that are widely accepted and available to the general public, particularly small and medium size enterprises (SMEs).

Established testing standards exist for deriving different mechanical properties; however, it has become clear that conventional procedures may not always be applicable to additive manufactured materials due to the nature of the additive fabrication process. Additionally, unique mechanical characteristics and property dependence often exist under different conditions such as geometry, process parameters and post-process procedures.

Key performance metrics and characteristic properties of additively manufactured components are often different from their conventionally manufactured counterparts, owing to AM materials’ distinctive microstructural features (e.g., strong texture, columnar grains, etc.) and possible process induced defects (e.g. lack of fusion/pores, cracks, surface features, etc.). These characteristics arise because of processing conditions unique to AM, such as layer-wise fabrication and exceptionally high cooling rates. It is therefore important to explore the various microstructural characteristics of AM materials and their impact on properties via experiments, models and simulations.

While destructive evaluation methods such as mechanical testing and microstructural characterizations are often used to evaluate mechanical performance of additive manufacturing materials and parts, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods can provide significant insights without the need for sectioning and damaging the part. Due to the fact that the mechanical performance of AM parts is often significantly influenced by the presence of defects (i.e., pores, lack of fusion, surface roughness, etc.), understanding the critical characteristics, such as type, size, distribution, and location is key to managing performance expectations and qualification.

The interest in sinter-based additive manufacturing processes continues to rapidly grow with the promise of enabling new applications by significantly reducing production costs. Sinter-based AM processes now include Binder Jetting (BJT), Material Extrusion (MEX), Material Jetting (MJT) and Vat Photopolymerization (VPP) technologies. Unique In these processes, powder material is bound together with a binding agent during the printing process, commonly referred to as a “green” or “brown” part. Secondary debinding and sintering steps are required to remove the binding agent and consolidate the powder material to the desired final density. While the potential is high, there are many challenges involved in these processes.
